International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)
Taken when students are 16 years of age, IGCSEs are designed to provide your child with broad and balanced programmes of study in a number of subject areas that develop critical thinking, analytical skills and the ability to communicate ideas effectively. Our IGCSE results are as good as or better than many top private schools in the UK, with BSG students often outperforming those from institutions such as Eton and Harrow.
2017 IGCSE RESULTS - The two main criteria that are used to judge examination performance for 16 year olds in the UK are; achieving 5 grades at 'C' or above, and the number of the highest grades achieved. We are very proud that 93% of all examinations sat by the British School of Guangzhou students received grade 'C' or above. This is a tremendous achievement, but our top students really shone with 48% of exams taken awarded either grade 'A*' or 'A '- the highest possible grades. This is compared to the UK's average of 22%, showing just how far ahead our students are as they move to university entry.
2017 has also been a particularly special year for IGCSE at the British School, with Rikke Ronnow achieving Best in the World out of 10,000 schools! With 11 A* grades, Rikke's performance was truly exceptional, and all of us at BSG are incredibly proud.
Advanced Level (A-Level)
The A-Level programme is a globally accepted qualification for students aged 18, as they look at gaining entry into universities and colleges. All USA, UK, Australian, Canadian, European and Asian universities accept A-Level qualifications. This includes the added benefit of possible advanced placement, as A-Level study offers a higher degree of specialisation than the IB programme.
2017 A-LEVEL RESULTS - With a 99% pass rate, our A-Level results are testament to our academic success and commitment to building a lifelong love of learning. 51% of exams taken by our students achieved an 'A' or 'A*' grade (UK average, 26%).
